As a consultant, you can be positioned in various roles depending your field of expertise. They involve you in projects of varying sizes in the pharmaceutical industry, biotechnology, healthcare, food industry and related sectors. Projects may be national or international in character. As a Consultant, you are expected to be effective from day one. The demand for deliverables is high while they also need to be of high quality. This means you combine complexitity, quality, deadlines and stakeholders all together. In many cases, you will develop, implement, validate and evaluate projects independently. In addition, you will be responsible for implementing a new process, product, procedure or quality system, for example. Additionally you might perform a GAP analysis, risk assessment or audit and work on developing and presenting customised courses and training sessions.

During projects, you will also advise our customers in various areas. You will give the customer several options and explain which one you would advise. However, if a customer takes a different decision, you accept it but are also willing to warn a customer if you feel that this choice entails risks. If you are not entirely sure about something, you can always consult experienced and expert colleagues.
